All the way to this is how to the city yes there -- went to the second cap and went to the second gap like. Not done that account like open some mop and all but I was one. Why is it get stopped like that cannot let up on my pipe broke what you know well. -- let me ask your question David. Where is your washing machine relation to these two stops in the toilets. Almost washing machine is when I'll walk out the side bill is right damn wars machine. And India. The -- is right across from meant maybe about a would have on door of the street. Okay what I have failed is that. Depending on the location of the washing machine that washing machine -- drains that -- water you force that pump forces what -- such great force. That I've seen a war to get into a -- being -- dale hill towards like you're you're sewer connection which -- streak and also back into the house. So that may be some of it. Maybe some of these you don't let little sagging your pipe. And that's why that you know that that waste and a total papers is sort of collecting right there. And an -- sag does overtime over the left the time it's accumulated buildup built up and you know when you -- ready to its second -- kind of pushed it through. As so you know he could be of a variety of reasons it doesn't actually have the means that you have broken pipe it to 2 PM sat in the pipe. Well what it would it would really happen is we're autos. Leakage through the cap. On the Acropolis. It was it was coming out on the cap -- could see no article. And and I knew someone thrown right back and now it's not yet it was blood collection you know. That's that's correct -- you get a big give big blockage so you have things ball if you believe it's come out there. Yeah okay so you suggest what would you suggest that if that happens again on the sport combined now. I mean but stuff. I think right now -- debuts -- the monitor what's happening. Pay attention to you how fast your -- flushes how fast the drains for you abilities and you tubs in the kitchen sinks operate. And start monitoring that if you see that happen again that you need to do some further investigation. He he could easily be the you know you use had a big clot can -- kept getting worse and worse and worse the right listen I've heard plumbers tell me. He would don't recommend Schulman told paper could show little paper. Clogs easier and pipes anything else I don't know if that's valid or true understanding the diplomacy of pull me. But apart from numerous climbers apparently in this -- something to it. And in and let -- say this that I'd buy -- products though and that's probably why they will fuss about me.
